5G Will Need Fiber, and Lots of It.
5G is more than just wireless technologies. It’s about an end-to-end ecosystem that affects the wireline networks that will connect geographically separated cell sites.
Think about it, it’s not just people connecting to people, data, and video. Machines have jumped in the connectivity game too, with 18 billion things projected to be interconnected by 2022*.
Watch Ciena’s Brian Lavallée, Senior Director of Portfolio Solutions, for a discussion on how you can prepare your existing wireline network for the arrival of 5G. You’ll learn:
- 4G to 5G migration and how you can prepare now
- What is network slicing, and why you’ll need it
- Business opportunities arising from 5G
5G will affect all parts of the network. For you to be successful, you’ll need more than just a new RAN, you’ll also need fiber—and lots of it.
Watch now to see why.
